Trans tag request
It is hard enough finding trans representation in our daily lives. With the LGBTQIA+ tag, one still needs to browse through channels and spend time in them to find trans streamers. A "trans" tag would help people searching for these communities.
Today we are rolling out 350+ tags, including the transgender tag, to provide you with more options on how you express yourself and your content, so that you can more easily connect with one another and build wonderful communities. We are really appreciative for all of the feedback around this topic (and other related suggestions).
We previously told you that we had a better solution to this request than adding the tag, and we were wrong. This has been one of the most popular requests we’ve heard, and the simple truth is that we should have done this sooner. In an effort to think carefully about how to best address this, we only made the situation more difficult. Again, thank you for helping us throughout this process in reevaluating our stance.
Please continue to share ideas and feedback you have to UserVoice, as well as any suggestions for additional tags you feel we may have missed! We are working to invest more into this forum and aim to have faster communications in the future.

100% support this <3
The Trans community has to be recognized, just like any other streamer!
Voting in the favor of this tag for many reasons, but equality & love above all else. Here's to another step in the right direction!
Its bonkers we have an LGBT tag and not a trans tag. Trans streamers make up about 50% of people I watch on twitch and I've found all of them separate from each other. It shouldn't be like that.
Trans Lives need to be represented in every way, Trans lives matter!
Trans tag is essential
Next we need a tag for Epilepsy/Seizure warning tag.
Trans lives matter!
This would really help people I'm our community connect better.
Please give trans people just a chance to be able to find their own. For so long they have been oppressed and made to sit down and be silent when for so long they are always the front runners for fighting for ***** lives. Let those questioning their gender find real role models to help guide them and look up to.
Its Incredibly important for trans people to have a space in this community and make it known that twitch is behind them. Trans people need to find a role model in streamers and a tag will help them find these model. Instead of having to skim through the endless gay white men to find representation.
I agree 100%. We definitely need a trans tag! The trans community needs more representation on Twitch!
The fact that this is not already apart of the community says a lot about how out of touch twitch is with their community.
The trans tag is very much needed. Let's make it happen.
Trans tag NOW! No excuses!
Please, Twitch, do better!
Trans rights are human rights. Moving forward, it is vital to ensure visibility, both for the trans community as well as for gay, lesbian, ********, and intersex people everywhere.
This is so important for the community ❤❤
All the love and support to my trans family, let's see this happen. <3
IS A NEED FOR OUR TRANS BROTHER AND SISTERS
This needs to become a reality.
